Each time we pass by this garden gate in Sorrento, I find myself dreaming of an English cottage garden.
Then recently I came across 6 of these bowls while out vintage shopping.
The simple design along with the fine crazing often found in a vintage piece of pottery are what caught my eye. I instantly fell in love with them.
Then there was my recent $5 yard sale find that I passed by the first time because I knew I didn't need it, until it hit me that this would be the perfect table to experiment on. I have suddenly developed a passion for anything shabby or vintage, especially if it has an English Cottage feel to it.
Here's how it looks now, displayed with a couple more vintage finds.
All it took was a quick coat of sparsely applied creme colored paint.
And just 2 coats of decoupage medium over a vintage tea rose that you may download for free from this website, containing royalty free vintage images.
I'm always such a pushover for a sweet little bird face.
And of course for anything that goes cheap, cheap, cheap.
